About me

 

To date I have been working around London in various roles such as a manager, team leader, high end promoter, high end marker, caterer etc, on a contract basis. Since June I have been doing a part-time internship with a events company. Collaborating on styled shoots, site visits, writing blogs, photography, designing room settings and sourcing materials. I am eager to put my creative approach towards set design, event space design or commercial design. As a qualified Interior Designer and working in design roles for over 4 years I have the skills essential to build and represent any high end firm. I am currently looking for either freelance, part-time or full-time work.
